Division of Art and Design

The Division of Art and Design offers degrees in Animation, Art, Studio Art and Graphic Design. The visual and digital arts afford the opportunities to explore Christian, academic and subjective knowledge toward the development of a personal vision. Every student, major or minor, has the opportunity to develop a Christian and professional awareness of their individual creativity. Theory is applied through studio practice with professors who teach from experience garnered from success on regional and national levels. These professors facilitate learning designed to cultivate the discovery of the entire person, because creating great art and design draws from all facets of knowledge and becomes our offering to culture and the Creator.
